Pours a barely clouded amber with a massive creme head on a too firm pour. I mean huge head. Nose is like hairspray with citrus and pine tones. Flavor is the same. Bleck. Let someone have a taste and they said it tasted like a bad version of Houblon Chouffe and I concur. Feel has a thick and almost syrup like body. I didn't really enjoy this. Sure it's great to try a single varietal IPA, but at these prices, there needs to be much better delivery. Can't suggest it, unless you are absolutely dying to try something along this line.

It is fascinating how such a ubiquitous hop can taste so different across beers as a function of the other parameters of brewing (malts, yeast, mash schedule, temperature, etc). This was not what I was expecting on the basis of many classic American pale ales and even other IPAs that feature Cascade prominently. 2nd batch bottle poured into an English pub glass. Pours a dark reddish honey/amber hue with ample beige head. The malt backbone on these Mikkeller single hop ales is quite hefty, with some dark Munich in there to add a lightly roasted sweetness. The malts come through to varying degrees across the beers (which is itself rather fascinating, unless maybe age is the main factor), and this exemplar is rather malty. Rich toffee and almost smoky molasses come across on both the nose and the palate, along with robust tangerine and grapefruit flesh/rind. If you ever have someone ask you how the heck one can taste tangerine in beer, direct them here. There is a decent dose of pine as well, faint chocolate and brown spice tea bag, and a rather chewy body coupled with fairly tame carbonation. I don't know. I dig the malts in these Mikkeller single hops, although they may yield pretty unique rather than "classic" hop flavor profiles, in combination with the yeast used. Cascade is rarely this much of a tangerine bomb and on this occasion the malts do not overshadow the star of the show (cf. Bravo). Sorry if this review reads like a brewing textbook. I will say that its a hoot to track down and compare these brews.
